On 24 April 2019, the meanwhile 16th inspection in accordance with the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) took place in one of Holzindustrie Schweighofer’s sawmills. The result of this control, which took place in the Sebes sawmill was – like all previous controls – positive for the company.
In the course of these EUTR inspections, the authorities verify whether companies are doing everything possible to prevent the sale of unlawfully harvested timber. The aim is to ensure that only legally harvested timber is placed on the European Single Market.
For Holzindustrie Schweighofer this positive result is further confirmation of the effectiveness of the action plan for a sustainable and secure supply chain, which the company implemented in early 2017. Its measures, including the wood tracking system Timflow go far beyond the Romanian legal requirements and are unique in the European wood processing industry.
The previous EUTR inspections took place in the following mills: Radauti (March, August, December 2015, March 2017), Sebes (March 2016, March 2017, March 2018, 2 controls in April 2019), Comanesti (November and December 2016, March and October 2018), Reci (November 2016), Siret (March 2015, March 2018).
